I’m originally from the Netherlands where I did my Nurse training and moved to the UK in 1992. I worked in Chester for 10 years before meeting my husband who was already in Nottingham and we moved to Ruddington where we live now. My role in the resuscitation department is very varied. I have just worked there for 3 years as resuscitation matron, but now my role will involve policy writing, with still a reasonable amount of teaching and attending 2222 calls. I also work a regular shift in the children’s emergency department on a Monday night. My background is adult and paediatric emergency nursing and I love my shifts there.

NUH was perfect for me as It was in great cycling distance from my house and at the time career opportunities here were brilliant. I have some amazing colleagues both in the emergency department and in the resuscitation department.
